Kris Manley is a blogger, author, and speaker. She's a guest on radio in the U. We, as a society, are so used to seeing black people with black or brown hair and with brown eyes, but when we see a black person with different color eyes and different color hair we see colored contacts and hair coloring. Pictures of him are quite surprising.
My mom said she and her sister were shocked, but not more shocked than their Dad, who swore the kid was not his, but the doctor said he was. What a relief my Mom and her sister thought, and their Dad, my Grandfather, calmed down. Genetics is a crazy thing and can reach way back in a bloodline and pull some tricks out of the proverbial hat. Research has suggested that there is some mutation in genes that causes black people to have blue, green or hazel eyes and blonde or red hair. This so-called mutation is seen mostly among pure Africans, and these Africans have no Caucasian ancestry.
A black person does not have to be mulatto or light-skinned to have blue or green eyes, blonde or red hair or freckles. The black race is quite varied in skin color, hair texture, and eye color as with any other race of people. I wonder if this same mutation is seen in other races?

This question will be answered in the video attached to this Hub — please watch, it will surprise you. As mentioned above, there are black Africans with characteristics not mostly seen by the average person that have blue, green, grey or hazel eyes along with red or blonde hair. Individuals, especially, in the U. We are used to seeing light-skinned people with these characteristics and of course the obvious is to assume that the light-skinned people have Caucasian ancestors or immediate family members.
An African-American dark-skinned friend of mine married a Caucasian man and they had three children, and one of the children was born with kinky red hair. That did not take them by surprise. It is surprising to see a black dark-skinned individual without the traditional brown eyes, brown or black hair. References to the dark skins of the inhabitants of the islands. Melanesians have frizzy hair and are dark-skinned. You will see that some Melanesians have blonde hair and grey or green eyes. If we were to see these people on a daily basis we would think nothing of it, but that is not the case.
Some of you reading this Hub may have experienced this if you frequently travel overseas. There are other races of people that we may think should have a certain skin color, hair or eye color. Again, this is what we mainly see in our own little world. Hello Xxtra, thank you for reading and sharing. Genetics does through in some surprises. My family is quite diverse as well. Donna this is a great article.
All in all great article super information thank you. After reading your article I don't feel so alienated about my "aqua" blue eyes. They tend to change depending on how I feel. Some days they are more gray others they are blue. But being a black person with light eyes that are characterized at Caucasian traits tend to get me Black girl with grey eyes attention than I would like. I wore brown contacts for over 20 years to fit in.
So thanks for posting this. My grandmother Black U. I'm mixed, and have a pale complexion, and had blonde hair when I was younger. My skin colour paled over the years, and my hair is brown now. With that said, Caucasians came from Blacks thousands of years ago, and it still happens to this day.
There are black families that give birth to blond hair, blue eyed children.
Dark melanin people are the original race, and due to climate structure, mutation et-al, it happens that Caucasians are born into Black families. Thousands of years ago, Caucasians were ostracized from their homes, or use your imagination as to what could have happened if you had a different skin coloured baby in an entire community with only one colour. These children were ostracized, and over the years migrated to other parts of the world, Asia, India, Europe, etc.
In lieu of environmental changes such as ice agesmany regions of the world were impossible to travel to. This may be the case in some families; however, everyone came from dark melanin people. This can be proven through DNA traces. I was born the oldiest of 6 born.
With light hazel eyes no one else has in my family. I am african american.
Hi Ronnie, thanks for reading, and yes with all the things going on in America, I am blessed to live in this moment in history. It's entirely to painful a thing that which shallow Americans from which ever heritage they spring from Cause this to develop into. It has been said by scientists that everyone on this planet began in Africa.
That we all began from 1 common Mother. That being said, we have spent thousands of years isolating peoples so that certain genetic commonalities show up. These commonalities are like the look and skin color of an Asian, or Celts having pale skin and freckles. So, we all have genes from each parent, you don't know what you got many times because of recessive genes!
My parents both had brown eyes. They had 5 girls, 2 with brown eyes and 3 with green. I think 3 of my grandparents had brown eyes!
One sister of mine was born with a negative blood type. Both my parents had positive blood types, and were told that was grounds for divorce! Please be reminded that years ago during my Grandparents era, this information was not general knowledge, and for to be born any different from his or her parents was questioned.
Thank you for your comments. Although this post is very informative and interesting. There was one part that really stuck out to me. Why was it a relief that your uncle's eyes and hair turned brown instead of staying blue and blonde. Why was that not a great unique part of him to be cherished instead of questioned. I don't understand that at all. Regardless of if he looked "normal" or not shouldn't they have excepted him the way he was born instead of hoping he'll look like everyone else eventually?
Hi jainismus, thanks. Different color eyes and other attributes are in every race of people. Thanks for reading. Thank you for sharing this great information. Here in India also there are some black people with hazel eyes. Hi prairieprincess, when I was researching to write this Hub I was surprised about some findings - I'll have to check the band of First Nations people in Ontario, Canada.
Wow, this is very interesting! I probably would assumed a Caucasian ancestor,too, as you mentioned in the article. This reminds me that there is a band of First Nations people in Ontario, Canada, that are blonde with blue eyes, and they always have been.
Thank you for the education and it's nice to see an actual Hubs video. It looks great! Hi maxoxam41, I agree that it is rarer to see an African with blue eyes and less probable to attach an explanation to the reason why.

There's nothing extraordinary in finding blue-eyed African-American, the mix of races is the cause however, it is rarer to see an African with blue eyes and less probable to attach an explanation to the phenomenon! Excellent hub which should be required reading regarding genetics for all.
You did a great job with the presentation which included visuals. There are many people who do not have the concept of recessive genes in the non-Caucasoid races. Informative hub - it's all about genetics, no matter how you look at it. Personal Finance. Welcome to Hubs. Related Articles. Visiting North America. By Peggy Woods. Cooking Ingredients. By Cchand.
